Some one in a previous review listed this as a textbook, well it really is and I have found it very helpful. The history behind the development of a technology helps me to understand the reason behind the development and a appreciation of the technology at hand and at the present time. Nothing just happens. It evolves and keeps on until it theoretically becomes refined to the max.(and lots of times it leads to a new invention) This is a fairly good book. I think it will give enough information to get you to walking and to begin to understand the terms and what they entail. Now I understand on my interface, what the sample rate is, and the meaning of compression. This isnt everything but it gives the fundamentals.
This is an informative book about audio basics and audio workstations. It help me, a first time user of audio and midi recording better understand the subject. I still have to master the technical details of cubase (DAW) and the hardware I have that connects all the audio signals together in the computer (Lexicon Lambda). I recommecd this book for those "in the dark", like I was.
Worked very well. Enjoying eminsely
Short and sweet, this was not quite what I was looking for. It's quite extensive in its study of the subject, but I wanted more of a "if this is what you want to do, this is what you'll need" type of book. This is more or less a text book.
